The Bank of England inflation calculator puts that at £14,900 so they really have gone up a bit haven't they...

14,900 sounds a bit low for a car of this calibre, what can you compare it to today ? dare I say a BMW 3Series coupe .  Huh?

That's not inflation from new but from when it was a classic in 1985. 

I'd say they doubled in the decade 85 to 95 when I got one then stayed flat until I sold.  Since then???  I should have kept the car and sold the bank shares...

Price guide:

http://www.classicandperformancecar.com/front_website/octane_interact/carspecs.php/?see=2635

£3472 in 1953 becomes £79,500 in 2011.  So its now a very similar 'value' to when new.  Octane say £75K for an excellent example. I keep thinking I should do a table of all Lancias with the new price, inflation correction and a price guide value for a good one now.  My guess is that a Flamina Berlina would come back as the best value.

£2847 in 1957 becomes £56,300 in 2011 compared with a price guide of £7250.

Here's the calculator if you want to try and beat that one:

Well, it depends where you are buying your 1952 Lancia, both then and now:

Another factor to bear in mind in all of this is the effect of national country taxes on the price of new cars, which also influences the prices of used cars. For example, in 1969 I was living in Belgium and was able to buy a new FIAT 124 Sport for just less than £1000. The same car in the UK with the then ‘vehicle tax’ plus ‘purchase’ tax cost more than twice that amount at a bit more than £2000.

My choice of a 124 Sport was influenced by the very long waiting time for a Fulvia 1300 Coupe or an Alfa Giulia 1300, both of which in Belgium cost very little more than the FIAT.

Happy days!
